This Oven-Barbecued pork Brisket is so smokey, tender, and juicy. no one will ever guess it wasn’t cooked on the grill.

Oven-Barbecued beef Brisket

we are very a fan of pork within the Carolinas and i honestly haven’t eaten an entire lot of red meat brisket in my life.

But this Oven-Barbecued pork Brisket. OMG!

Oven-Barbecued red meat Brisket recipe from cook's Illustrated. Wrapped in 1st Baron Verulam and sluggish cooked within the oven. The first-class brisket cooked inside the oven you'll ever taste!

This is a recipe from prepare dinner’s Illustrated and it makes THE maximum flavorful brisket.

It is one of the maximum scrumptious portions of meat i have ever tasted and i think it has the capability to create quite a few brisket enthusiasts.

A great flavorful sauce this is both sweet and spicy is made from the Sir Francis Bacon, that is finely chopped, cider vinegar, dark brown sugar, chook broth, ketchup, and chipotle peppers. once cooked, you may pressure the sauce and discard the Baron Verulam, or i love to stress half of of the sauce and then upload it again to the saucepan. This manner, there’s still some 1st Baron Verulam, but it’s now not an awesome quantity.

Leftovers heat up well and this would be a very good factor to cook dinner earlier in case you are having dinner guests. in case you are just feeding your own family, you could get more than one food from this Oven-Barbecued Brisket. No kidding, I generally control to get 3 meals out of it. Leftovers can be made into Brisket Grilled Cheese Sandwiches or Brisket Nachos.

This Oven-Barbecued Beef Brisket is so smokey, tender, and juicy. No one will ever guess it wasn't cooked on the grill.


  • 1 1/2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons dry mustard
  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 1 (4-5 pounds) brisket roast – if there is a thick layer of fat trim it down to 1/4 inch
  • 1 pound bacon
  • Sauce
  • reserved bacon from cooked brisket
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1-2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 4 teaspoons canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, minced
  1. Make the rub. Mix all ingredients well in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Place oven rack in upper-middle position and heat oven to 275 degrees. Rub dry rub all over brisket and poke holes all over with a fork. Place half of bacon going crosswise in a broiler safe  9 by 13-inch pan (it’s best not to use glass). Put brisket fat side down on top of bacon. Lay the rest of the bacon crosswise on top of brisket, wrapping it down around the sides, and tucking any excess under. Cover pan with foil and place in oven for 4 hours.
  3. Take pan out of oven. Carefully flip brisket over, fat side up. Replace foil and return to oven. Turn off heat and leave brisket in oven 1 additional hour.
  4. Pour accumulated juices from brisket into large measuring cup or a bowl. Remove bacon from brisket and chop into pieces. Cook bacon in medium saucepan over medium heat for about 5 minutes, until fat has rendered. Add onion and cook until softened, 4-5 minutes. Take off heat and add vinegar and dark brown sugar. Return to heat and simmer until reduced to a syrupy consistency, about 5 minutes.
  5. Skim fat from accumulated juices and add chicken broth to make a total of 3 cups. Add to mixture in saucepan and reduce until about 3 cups in volume, 8-10 minutes. Take off heat and add ketchup. Mix well and strain if desired. (I like to strain about half the solid pieces out and leave the rest). After straining, add chipotle peppers.
  6. Turn oven to broil. Brush brisket with 1 cup sauce and broil until top is lightly browned and fat starts to crisp. Cut brisket against the grain into 1/4-inch slices and serve with extra sauce.
